Branson has no shortage of great shows to entertain every member of your family. Whether you like acrobatics, comedy, magic, music, or variety there is a choice available. Branson is home to dozens of shows and theaters, and has more live shows most nights than even Las Vegas.
One of the newest and most exciting shows in Branson is “A Trans-Siberian Experience” at the Music City Centre. Performing every Thursday-Saturday at 7PM. This show is unlike anything Branson currently has in its repertoire. It is described as Van Halen meets Beethoven and is full of classical themes set to a modern rock sound. The show features a full laser light show along with being in Missouri’s only digital immersive theater with a 150 foot screen that wraps the audience 180 degrees for a full sensory experience. For the holidays, the show will of course highlight many of your favorite Christmas tunes.
